Eagles Don't Plan to Trade or Cut DeSean Jackson, According to Report

Ed Szczepanski-USA TODAY Sports

DeSean Jackson isn't going anywhere, according to a report from the Philadelphia Inquirer.

To the surprise of many, speculation emerged over the weekend that DeSean Jackson may be on the trading block. According to a recent report by Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, there is no substance to that speculation. McLane's report is the first instance since the speculation started that someone has refuted it.

The Eagles are not actively shopping DeSean Jackson, nor do they have any intention of parting with their Pro Bowl wide receiver this offseason.

Another Jackson rumor popped up earlier on Wednesday when CSN Philly's Geoff Mosher appeared on ProFootballTalk. Mosher noted that Jackson was "one false step away" from being cut from the Eagles roster. Unsurprisingly, many were skeptical of Mosher's quote. McLane's report is also denying Mosher's claim.

Jackson isn’t close to being cut, and even if he was one misstep away from forcing the Eagles to move him, they most certainly wouldn’t release him without getting something in return.

I've written many times that trading Jackson doesn't seem to make very much sense unless the return was something out of this world. And even then, it probably would be best for the Eagles to stick with Jackson as a proven option. Cutting Jackson makes even less sense considering his immense value to the team. It seemed like the only possible reason the Eagles would want their play-making receiver gone is because of matters to which the public is not privy to.

But for now, barring future developments, it looks like Jackson will be back with the Eagles in 2014.
